An Untitled Yet Relevant Poem, An Apology, and Some Life Updates

The very allegation of a fraudulent Andrew Jackson didn’t warrant an execution

The globe saw how vile the act was

Earlier on, others in the same profession acted with extreme restraint against tooled up whiners who threatened them and politicians

What stark irony and hypocrisy

That was undeserved in the land of 10,000 lakes

May justice remove her blindfold and for olive branches to renovate this society

[Dedicated to George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, and many more…]

I’m sorry I haven’t been talkative on my blogs over the past few days. I’ve been dealing with different issues. Some are certainly miniscule in hindsight, some are about my emotions, and the current state of America REALLY hasn’t helped. I needed to calm down before posting something very irrational. Is it that hard for people to have human decency? What did surprise me was how many have been saddened about what happened recently. You know that’s something when even mainstream figures of different class and political backgrounds are condemning this. My silence over the past few days was not me ignoring these atrocities. Trust me, I’ve been reading up on these things. I can’t lie, I had to break it up with lighthearted stuff, books, and even the occasional film so I don’t go stark raving mad or dangerously depressed.

I don’t picture myself posting as frequently as I usually do as of recently on this blog. This isn’t just because of the current climate. I also have other things to do like some constructive projects and even educational things.

As sappy as it sounds, I just want justice, peace, and people to just love as well as freaking accepting the humanity of others. It’s certainly a miracle that I have enough compassion to wish for such things.

  1. I absolutely get you about being silent and not wanting to post something irrational. I’m in the same situation. I’m also still processing it all, taking a break from the news and yet I know I just can’t keep silent. And no, wanting justice, peace, love and acceptance of one another is not sappy at all. It’s what most of us want, too. Take care!

    • Thank you, Khaya. There were other issues on my end, but some of them were shallow. Anyways, I hear you about processing everything and that’s not even getting into the current aftermath going on right now. I want to be informed, but I can’t just only focus on the horrifying news all the time. Like you, I can’t just keep silent because this needs to be addressed and not just on principle for the sake of people like you or I. Thanks for believing how what I want wasn’t sappy. Likewise, Khaya.
